Dubai Pulls In 800 MW Of Solar Development Interest
Developer interest in the upcoming third phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum solar project is apparently quite strong, going by recent news. The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority apparently received 95 different expressions of interest from energy companies around the world looking to win a contract for the 800 megawatt development.
The project — being constructed in the Seih Al Dahal area of Dubai — is based around the Independent Power Producer model; and is expected to split into different portions to be developed by different bidders. The second phase of the very large project was developed by a consortium headed by the Saudi Arabian ACWA Power and Spainish Grupo TSK.
